Question:
What education do you need to be a paleontologist?


Replies:
Since Paleontology is so specialized and so very complex you, of course, need a strong undergraduate education with the typical comparative anatomy, evolutionary bio courses etc. and then need to go onto grad school...Usually a Ph.D. but a masters might due depending on the situation.
